things to throw away

Cleaning out clutter can be a tough task, especially if you have been letting it build up for a while. Instead of setting aside a huge block of time to take care of months' or years' worth of clutter, take baby steps by throwing away only one type of item a day. And by throwing away, I mean recycling, selling, donating, or — as the last resort — trashing. Here's a list of 116 types of items that will take you about four months to dispose of:

  1. The other side of a pair of lost earrings
  2. Scraps of wrapping paper
  3. Cards people have given you with no sentimental value
  4. Receipts you don't need
  5. Ticket stubs
  6. Socks with holes
  7. Old t-shirts
  8. Leftover change
  9. Dried flowers
  10. Magazines
  11. CDs
  12. Hair elastics that have lost stretchiness
  13. Hair accessories you don't use
  14. Shoes that don't fit or that you don't wear
  15. Extra photo prints
  16. Little knickknacks (designate a bowl and fill it)
  17. Kitchen things you don't use
  18. Cooking utensils you have two of
  19. Tired bras
  20. Scarves you never wear
  21. Clothes that don't fit
  22. Gifts you don't like
  23. Old towels
  24. Old makeup
  25. Old toiletries
